Local News

BELVIDERE, Ill. (WTVO) — Some union workers at the Belvidere Assembly Plant will vote this week to decide if they will authorize a strike.

The flier from the UAW 1268 states a secret ballot strike authorization vote will happen on Thursday, August 22nd.

This doesn’t mean they will strike, but a yes vote gives their negotiators the authority to call a strike.

Back in May, Chrysler eliminated their “c-shift” cutting nearly 1,400 jobs.
